Come Hunt With Us!
If you enjoy the art and challenge of fly fishing you will likely find the same fun and fulfillment in upland bird hunting. The two activities are quite analogous as the words “Cast and Blast” have become a quintessential phrase in the outdoor world. The beauty of both fly casting and bird hunting is that both pastimes are quite simple and with a little practice and guidance one can become quite proficient in no time!
The Bluffs are located at the confluence of East and West Bijou Creek in Byers, Colorado, just a short drive from Denver. Pheasants and Quail are native to this part of Colorado and managed populations of Chukar and Hungarian Partridge insure the wing shooting enthusiast plenty of action. Typically we arrive at The Bluffs around 11:30 a.m. eat a delicious lunch prepared by on-site chefs and then head to the sporting clays course for a little pre-hunt warm up. Then we journey to the field with amazingly well trained pointing dogs. The experience is bar none the best in the business and we will do everything to ensure that the hunt is safe and successful. The beauty of the eastern prairie and enchanting cotton wood bottoms combined with the spectacle of flying pheasants creates for an experience that won’t be soon forgotten.
Much like the excitement of a big fish hooked on a fly, pheasant hunting is about living in the moment as words cannot describe the rush and serenity associated with a dog slamming on point to reveal a cackling rooster soaring away! Even if you have never tried upland bird hunting or shooting, or would like to introduce someone new to the sport our hunts are a great opportunity to do so. Flyfisher guide and upland bird hunting fanatic, Tyler Bowman will be giving a shooting lesson and safety meeting pre-hunt and guiding you and your guests throughout the day. In addition, our hunts are fully hosted with all the hunting gear necessary, new shotguns to try and post trip photos to document the day afield. Our goal is to introduce you and your guests to this great American past time in a safe, fun, and informative environment.
